Six brave ladies from the Manorhamilton area completed the gruelling 870 kilometres National Cycle Against Suicide over the southern part of Ireland from Saturday, April 27 to Monday, May 6 this year.

The six – Chloe Rooney, Margo Kerrigan, Geraldine Rooney, Deirdre Gaffney, Aoife Molloy and Emma O’Hagan – through their Herculean efforts raised an excellent sum of €7,306 for Northwest STOP.

Acknowledging the super cycling and fundraising efforts of the ladies a spokesperson for the Manorhamilton based suicide prevention organisation said “they raised €7,306 for STOP which will provide over 200 hours of free counselling in our area.
“Last month we provided a staggering 70 hours of counselling in the Sligo/Leitrim area.”
